Original Fillings for the Roscón de Reyes

This year we got creative with the Roscón de Reyes! We know the classic flavors of cream and truffle (great, of course) but what if we go beyond that? The Roscón de Reyes is the perfect excuse to demonstrate our culinary skills and give our loved ones a pleasant surprise. With these fillings, we give the roscón de Reyes that sweet final touch that we like so much. We recommend that you use a pastry cream for the filling. Do you dare to try these innovative fillings?

In another bowl we mix the cream (100 ml) with a tablespoon of sugar. Combine both mixtures. Heat the remaining cream and dissolve the gelatin in it. We add this and then mix the egg white. Stir gently.
